Estancia Ombu Countryside Day Trip

See the beautiful countryside of Argentina on a day trip from Buenos Aires to an estancia.

 

Estancias are Argentinean ranches, many of which are still fully operational with cattle, horses and other livestock. Estancia Ombu is one of the most highly rated estancias in the surrounding area of Buenos Aires located near the quaint gaucho (Argentinian cowboy) town of San Antonio de Areco. Take a day trip out to the countryside and go horseback riding, see the real gauchos at work, visit the nearby rural town with a brief guided city tour, breath in some fresh air and eat a delicious asado (Argentinean BBQ) lunch.

Guests are welcome to observe and take part in the various stock-rearing activities as they happen on the ranch: milking, cattle driving, vaccination, ear-tagging, de-horning, branding, etc.

Feel free to explore the 750 acre estancia on foot or accompanied by one of the seasoned gauchos on horseback (Horse drawn carriages are also available). Bird watchers welcome (binoculars and bird guide books available upon request)!

Other recreational activities include a swimming pool with sun room, ping-pong, volleyball, football and bicycle rides.
